Join Los Angeles-based cartoonist Vanessa Davis at Skylight Books on Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at 7:30 PM as she presents her latest release Spaniel Rage: a collection of frank, intimate pencil drawings created over the course of one year to chronicle her life as a single woman in New York. Filled with self-deprecating anecdotes about her anxieties, intimate moments between friends and lovers, and mingling general observations and wry truths about life in the Big City, Spaniel Rage is a witty tour de force that grabs you by the heartstrings.
Vanessa Davis’s autobiographical comics delighted readers ten years ago when she first began telling stories about her life in New York as a young single Jewish woman. More observational than confessional, Spaniel Rage is filled with frank and immediate pencil drawn accounts of dating woes, misunderstandings between her and her mother, and conversations with friends. Her keen observation of careless words spoken casually is refreshingly honest, yet never condemning. Unabashedly, Davis offers up gently self-deprecating anecdotes about her anxieties and wry truths about the contradictions of life in the big city. These comics are sexy, funny, lonely, beautiful, spare, and very smart—the finest work from a natural storyteller.

Spoke Art is proud to present the Miyazaki Art Show – a whimsical showcase of over fifty artists from around the world celebrating the films of Japanese film-maker and animator Hayao Miyazaki. Taking inspiration from the Studio Ghibli director’s classic films such as My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Howl’s Moving Castle, Kiki’s Delivery Service, and Ponyo to his lesser known work like The Wind Rises and Mr. Dough and the Egg Princess, each artist has created unique works inspired by Miyazaki’s imaginative universe.
Including a diverse array of original painting, sculpture and limited edition prints, the Miyazaki Art Show offers each artists’ perspective and interpretation of beloved characters and themes throughout Miyazaki’s films. Imbued with the legendary director’s sense of adventure, deep reverence for nature and strong female characters, this dynamic exhibition is not to be missed.
Please join us for the Miyazaki Art Show, opening Saturday, February 4th, with an opening night reception from 6pm-9pm. Attendees dressed as their favorite Miyazaki character will get priority access to the event and some artists will be in attendance.
